A disappointing, empty, pointless documentary

A documentary is not fiction, but it's still meant to tell a story. Blackpink: The Movie does not. Instead of any cohesive through line it skips unpredictably between backstage clips from their tour or online concert, to concert performances, to art-house style films for each member, to group Q&A, then back to concert clips and so on. There's no emotional rise or fall, no overcome conflicts, not even much of a sense of accomplishment. Even the interviews are low on information content, instead being mostly a mix of emotional self-expression, thanking the fans, and wishing to see them soon.

By contrast Blackpink: Light Up The Sky tells a clear story, of the rise of Blackpink from pre-debut through to their 2019 Coachella performances. Skip this and watch Light Up The Sky instead.

Seeing the girls cook and care for their team was super sweet. It sounds like a lot of the team have been together for years, so they had some funny stories to tell together.

It amused me that it was Wendy and Irene working hard in the kitchen while Seulgi, Joy and Yeri mostly sat and chatted with their guests (occasionally fixing them drinks), but you know, that's really just their personalities on show. At least they all know how to cook ramyon!

In short, a fun and cute little reality show where Red Velvet get to show their love to their team.

This drama has the best demonstration of why the main leads love each other of any drama I've watched so far. The male lead may have fell in love at first sight, but he quickly comes to respect and admire the female lead's strength of character, while his pursuit of her not only softens her heart to him, but gives her the space to bloom and shine as a person. The leads vocalise why they love each other so that we're not left making up the reasons like in many other dramas.

While this drama embraces many unnecessary tropes at times, and piles on difficulties in the female lead's life to an excessive extent, it has a great cast, and overall feels more realistic than it arguably has the right to.
